Story

Welcome to my give.net fundraising page. If you are a UK taxpayer, please confirm that you would like to reclaim Gift Aid on your donation. This will add 25p to every £1 you give. 

This project began in 2018 to support schools in two extremely poor communities on Ometepe Island, Nicaragua to which a further remote school has been added in 2020. Funds are used to provide uniforms for pupils, educational equipment and opportunities to complete  training. We have supported internet access, cultural activities and  football.  In 2020 we repaired the infrasctruture in the schools.  The country is dependent on unpreductable income from tourism.  Those who do not work for the government, work in the fields.  We want to give these communities hope for the future.  Water and sanitation is a high priority this year.

No expenses or salaries are paid.  All donations support the schools.

In 2019 we raised £10,000 including  £1622 from Billingshurst Rotary club.

We have the same target this year!
